Egg and Sausage Empanadas

Egg and Sausage Empanadas - OBee Credit Union in Olympia Wa




  • 3 oz. breakfast sausage (3 links removed from casing)
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 package store-bought pie dough 
  • 3 large eggs, plus 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add sausage and oil. Cook, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon into small bits, until sausage is cooked through and golden, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs to the skillet, and cook, stirring slowly, until eggs are just barely set about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool slightly while preparing the dough.
  2. Unroll one piece of the pie dough. Using a 4-inch round cutter, cut out 5 dough rounds. Repeat with second pie dough, then re-roll scraps from both to make 2 more rounds for 12 rounds total.
  3. Working with one round at a time, use a pastry brush or your fingers to gently brush the edge with the beaten egg. Place a heaping tablespoon of egg filling in center and top with a bit of cheese. Fold dough round in half to cover filling; press edge together to seal. Use a fork to crimp edges together. Repeat with remaining filling and dough. Lightly brush tops of empanadas with beaten egg and place evenly spaced on a large, rimmed baking sheet.
  4.  Bake until golden, about 12 minutes.
